§ Ms. Richardson
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will publish the minutes of the meetings of the ministerial group on women's issues, from May 1986 to date; and whether he will place a copy of the equal opportunities proofing system and proofing checklist in the library.
§ Mr. John Patten
It is not the practice to publish the internal record of meetings of Ministers. A press release was made following the last meeting of the group. On the second part of her question, I refer the hon. Member to the reply to her question on 7 November at columns 10-11.
